Local Fare is everywhere and everything you want us to be. 

We’re proud to give our readers ideas, inspiration, and opportunities to "enjoy the life you love for less.”  We’re your connection to exciting events, the most popular restaurants, and unique artisans that make our community special.

We're in your mailbox, on your social media feed and on your phone, allowing easy access to our deals the moment you need them. We're always evolving to better serve you and help small businesses thrive. 

The only question now is, "Why? Why do we do it?" We love all things local. We admire and applaud each and every small business owner, the creators and doers that make Chattanooga an amazing place to call our home. We're proud to support the business owners that encourage us to enrich our families, our lives and our community.

Small businesses get the attention they deserve, and our readers are encouraged to "shop local" with exclusive offers. It's a win-win!

15 year transplant to Chattanooga and mother of two children – Amelia and Deacon.  I strive to put out the best product that I can each month for my friends and local Chattanoogans.  I am an entrepreneur, crossfitter, a wanna-be surfer, and an expert multi-tasker. 


Juan Bustamante

Creative Director

So many hobbies, so little time.  Creative Director – a so-called idea guy, a title given to me and frankly, stressfully acquired.  Married to the boss and have 2 children that I adore as much as they (hopefully) adore me.  Mountain biker,  youth sports coach, dreamable surfer and beer drinker by name.
